Flexible Methodology for Developing Mammalian Cell Lines

The speed at which a recombinant protein product progresses into clinical trials is of vital importance for both small biotechnology companies as well as the biopharma groups of large pharmaceutical companies. For mammalian cell lines, two major impacts on the project timeline are the ability to quickly identify a product candidate and subsequently produce a high-expressing cell line for that product. The advent of various computer-based protein design methodologies and antibody discovery technologies for developing protein therapeutics has resulted in large numbers of protein or antibody variants that must be screened to identify the best clinical candidate.
